I realize that every cell company has a device that keeps track of car location and driving characteristics (speed, acceleration, etc), but I am iterested in a device that lets me know if someone has opened my car door and is either sleeping in the car or shuffling through my things.

I naturally expect this system to be sold through a cellular company, because my automobile may not be parked within range of a wi-fi system.

Probably easiest would be to place a small wireless spy camera inside your car, that would send notifications to your phone

Oh, wait! There is something already. Not perfect - I don't think it will notify you when you park it in the boonies, but otherwise not too bad:

Thank you, that device seems perfect and it is comfortably priced.
